Old fancy hem stitches

TAST stitch 67 is fancy hem stitch. It’s a great stitch and I like to share a few old samples to inspire you. The first one is my TAST 2010 sampler. You can read the details in my original posts here and here.
This is a work in progress photo of my last TAST 2010 sampler with a repeat of all stitches. The threads are yellow perle 8 and DMC fil or clair.
A seam on my ornament Beezzz. I attached the lace with fancy hem stitches, the threads are perle 5 and a metallic thread.
Here I attached a piece of lace on my pink ornament. The thread is perle 5 and Sulky metallic. Later I added some French knots between the stitches.
My last detail is part of block one for Karen’s class Embroider, Embellish, Create. It was the perfect stitch to secure my rouleau loops. The thread is cotton a broder.


  1. De foto's die jij altijd maakt van de borduursteken zijn erg mooi! Goed belicht, haarscherp. Dat mag ook weleens gezegd worden ;-)

  2. You have a really good collection of this wonderful stitch. It is lovely both when two different threads/colours are used as well as the last monochrome example. Thank you for the inspiration.
